Hormone Booster™ contains 3,4-divanillyltetrahydrofuran, an isolated plant extract from Urtica dioica. According to research 3,4-divanillyltetrahydrofuran is the most potent natural inhibitor of SHBG known. SHBG binds to, and deactivates, testosterone in men, and estrogen and testosterone in women (SHBG preferentially blocks testosterone rather than estrogen). By inhibiting SHBG, Hormone Booster™ increases the levels of active unbound testosterone and estrogen. Testosterone improves muscle tone, fat loss, exercise performance, libido, mental function, energy and mood in men and women. Testosterone also helps prevent andropause in men, as well as improves cardiovascular, immune system and brain health in men and women. Estrogen helps prevent menopausal symptoms and brittle bones in women. 3,4-divanillyltetrahydrofuran has also been demonstrated to have weak to moderate aromatase inhibition.
Supplementing with L-glutamine is known for enhancing exercise performance, maintaining acid-base balance and increasing the storage of glycogen in muscle. In an Iranian study, 30 healthy non-athlete males were randomly divided into placebo and glutamine supplementation groups and put through an eight-week resistance training program. Both groups performed the same weight training program three days a week for eight weeks. Both groups increased in performance, but the glutamine groups showed greater increases in lower- and upper-body strength, explosive muscle power, blood testosterone, IGF-1, and HGH compared to the placebo group.

Menopause is a difficult time for women. Their systems begin to produce smaller amount of estrogen and progesterone hormones, and they are left coping with the side effects of hormonal imbalance. Dealing with the side effects of hormonal imbalance can be extremely challenging for menopausal women. Night sweats , mood swings , and vaginal dryness are only a small selection of the signs and symptoms of hormonal imbalance that women can experience. Consequently, they are left desperately searching for a treatment whilst experiencing a great deal of stress.
